Overwater bungalows are more traditionally found in the South Pacific within calm lagoons. In fact, the first overwater bungalow was launched by 3 Californian expats known as the Bali Hai trio in 1968 at the Club Bali Hai Moorea Hotel on the French Polynesian island of Moorea. The success of this first overwater bungalow which welcomed celebrity guests like Marlon Brando, helped the concept to spread throughout Tahiti, Bora Bora and the rest of the South Pacific.
